    Side stories abound, and Ham Studios keeps you entertained with music and news. [Sept 2004, p.116]

    Even if the image of the precious Hamtaro in an apple suit makes you cringe, there's a solid game behind the cuteness. [Sept 2004, p.94]
  3. A nice diversion from other taxing games. It also makes a great mini game for the road, but if you're looking for something that will last for over 20 hours look for another game. [JPN Import]
  4. Older gamers may want to give this a spin for kicks, but younger gamers will appreciate the challenges and fun that Hamtaro: Ham Ham Games brings to the table.
  5. From the prospective of an Olympic game to play, this is a great choice for any kid, or even for you if you’re on the road a lot and get in plenty of Game Boy time.
  6. If Ham Ham Games had a stronger RPG element (a Mario Golf GBA level of involvement would have been fine) and the ability to record high scores by name (it just saves the score, not the scorer) and it would have scored a point or two higher.
  7. Ham-Ham Games delivers everything you could hope for from a GBA title. It’s not particularly big and it’s not especially clever, but it is good fun and that’s what matters. [Sept 2004, p.114]

    I really liked this game, especially the side issues that were going on between sports. It's very cute and funny! However, I wish they I really liked this game, especially the side issues that were going on between sports. It's very cute and funny! However, I wish they would have made a multi-player function so you can play the sports with your friends (maybe even without them having a game-pak). Full Review »
